"Black Bugs" as written by and Benjamin Forder Ely....
i got killed by black bugs on video game
and then although to myself it doesn't mean too much
i keep dying and dying over and over again
and now i think i'm alive so i'll just pretend

what's at the end? (x2)
what's at the end of satan's rainbow?

what's at the end? (x2)
what's at the end of satan's rainbow?

stared at the tv too long now and i'm not the same
i've got to remind myself that it's just a game
it's getting harder and harder to get to sleep at night
i think i'll let them shoot me so that i can die

what's at the end? (x2)
what's at the end of satan's rainbow?

what's at the end? (x2)
what's at the end of satan's rainbow?

what's at the end? (x2)
what's at the end of satan's rainbow?

what's at the end? (x2)
what's at the end of satan's rainbow?

what's at the end?
tell me is this the end?
what's at the end of satan's rainbow?

what's at the end? (x2)
what's at the end of satan's rainbow?

what's at the end? (x6)

    General Commenti think Satan's rainbow is all video games.

    it plays on the old pot of gold at the end of the rainbow idea. you can keep walking searching for the end of the rainbow and you'll never get anything of value from it. but there is always the thought that playing on will get you something in the end.

    This song is screaming about the effect of gaming on people. remembering this is in 1997 its hard to say much has changed in the world, i still get sucked into games wondering 'whats at the end' 11 years on.

    General Commentnow this is the song I mostly relate to.

    "What's at the end of Satan's rainbow?" is basically the philosophy of all video games; you just want to know what's at the end...and you keep playing and playing until it sucks you right in.

    General CommentI don't think it's that simple. In fact I think it's more of a statement on how sitting around playing video games is wasting your life. Haha.

    Can't say I agree with them, as I spend a lot of my time gaming anyway. But it's a great song.

    General CommentThis song is about being addicted to playing video games, so much that you lose in touch with the reality. I think "What's at the end of satan's rainbow" is a metaphor for insanity/going insane.

    General CommentI've heard that the "black bugs" from this song are based on the bugs from one of the Turok games.
    I dunno if thats right but thats just what i heard.
